Rehabilitate Wallabies and Kangaroos in Sydney

Kangaroo Naming Competition

Thank you so much for donating and entering in our Kangaroo naming Competition.

We have chosen the name Dell for our little girl, who is now starting to hop around for short periods before going back into her pouch. She weighs 2105gms, double the weight she was when she came into Sydney Wildlife's care.

We will give you an update on Dell's progress in our next project report.

The rehabilitation area has progressed well with the fence now being completed and shade cloth attached, and shelters built for the macropods (Wallabies and Kangaroos) to escape the elements. We need to attach shade cloth as a visual barrier, otherwise macropods when frightened could try to hop straight through the fence to the bush on the other side of that fence and possibly hurt themselves in the process.

Please look at the pictures with this report as they will show the work we have been doing on our rehabilitation facility. 

Thank you once again for allowing us to look after Sydney's orphaned Wallabies and Kangaroos properly by donating, this allows us to build the rehabilitation facility.
